Almost the first of November - I can't believe we are still experiencing Fall weather; but I suspect Winter is on it's way! Thought I would share a couple more touches of Fall before the snow flies.
This painting, which typifies the Rocky Mountains in Fall, was painted by Bob's grandmother's sister-in-law. It was a gift to his grandparents, and hung in their home until 1965.
In 1965, Colorado experienced major flooding and Bob's grandparents were victims. With water flooding their basement, there was an explosion and their home was destroyed -- they were elderly, injured, and never fully recovered. Bob's mother retrieved Aunt Lottie's painting, cleaned it up, and it then hung in her living room until her death last month.
And, now, it hangs in ours.
With everything that has gone on this Fall, I finally went out to cut my hydrangeas.
It amazes me the metamorphosis of my hydrangea's color from Spring to Fall.
When they first bloom, they start out a beautiful shade of blue; then turn pinkish.
Now that they have dried, they are green, brown, and maroon --- the wonder of God's creations.
